The beautiful mixed-used Cureton neighborhood in Waxhaw offers homeowners the best of both worlds - lower population density of Union County (N.C.) and still convenient to the South Charlotte/Ballantyne area and interstate access.
Begun in 2005, Cureton is located off Providence Road north of quaint downtown Waxhaw, which is only 4 miles away. The neighborhood is nestled between Providence and Waxhaw-Marvin roads.
Everyday amenities are right across the street with Lowe's, Wal-Mart and a Carolinas HealthCare emergency care branch right outside the residential area of Cureton.
Ballantyne Commons Parkway and I-485 access is only 8 miles north on Providence Road. Ballantyne Center is only 9.5 miles away. A trip to the SouthPark area is 16 miles, while the Uptown area is 27 miles or roughly 40 minutes without traffic.
Master-planned Cureton is built on 380 acres of land and includes nearly a half million square feet of retail space, 60,000 square feet of office space, single-family homes and townhomes.
The neighborhood amenities include a pool with water slide, clubhouse, fitness center, bocce ball court, playground and walking trails.
